Simulation training

Who are we?

Working under Clinical Skills Managed Education Network (CSMEN) we are developing simulation-based educational development programmes for medical training programmes across Scotland. There is a recognition for the need for repetitive, deliberate practice of skills, with feedback as the foundation to developing and enhancing skills.

The programmes focus on: 

  • developing a culture of regular personal, in-house simulation-based training
  • the addition of simulation to existing monthly teaching programmes and occasional courses

We already have 4 established programmes with the much anticipated expansion currently in progress behind the scenes.

Current programmes:

  • IMT - Internal Medicine Training
  • IST - Improving Surgical Training (Core Surgical Training)
  • HST General Surgery - Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery
  • Core Psychiatry Training (webpage coming soon)
